The Adventures of Robin Hood

Revealing mistake: At the end of the fight on the log between Robin and Little John, John's quarterstaff bangs down onto the log some distance away from the foot (of Robin) it is meant to have stabbed.


Continuity mistake: In the first fight scene, the first castle guard you see Robin Hood kill somehow falls on top of the body of the third guard killed.


Other mistake: King John's henchman goes to slap Robin across the face and the camera cuts to Robin kicking him in the chest, backwards into the crowd. Indicating a retake that Flynn lost his footing in the 1st take. After henchman barrels backward it suddenly cuts to John speaking with Gisbourne about revenge.


Continuity mistake: When Robin and Marian are in each other's arms in her boudoir, the angles change between close-ups. One moment they are starring in each other's eyes, the next they are 3-4 feet apart.


Continuity mistake: When Robin Hood and Marian are talking they are 4 to 5 feet apart. But in the close-ups they are practically touching shoulders. An obvious angle change to create intimate connection between them.


Continuity mistake: When the soldiers have the man tied to some wine barrels, they begin filling a metal jug, but then they throw a wooden mug over his head.


King Richard: My first command to you, my lord earl, is to take in marriage the hand of Lady Marian. What say you to that, Baron Of Loxley?
Robin Hood: May I obey all your commands with equal pleasure, sire!
